Default Has anyone made paper bows for barrettes?

Hi everyone! I just joined here, and have a question...I have not made any bows yet, but do make one of a kind footstools and hair accessories with flowers and beads. I have this great paper and thought about making it into a bow to put on a barrette. The bow is made with a button in the middle and beads in the center of the button. It is cute, but I have a couple of concerns. One...ripping, two...fading, three...smushing. Has anyone made hair accessories from paper? Does anyone have a product that will keep the paper stiff and intact that can be applied to it? I would love the help!

Lee

I don't think paper is such a good idea unless you live in an area that doesn't rain and you know the child isn't going to get it wet somehow.

I think it sounds interesting, I am always interested in new ideas. Might take a little experimenting to get it worked out.

I just wanted to say that I love the crepe flowers. One more thing I live in Brownsville Texas and we usually celebrate Charro Days and I would like to make some for my daughter. Would you beo kind to direct me to where I can find the instruction. Thank you

I make paper clippies...the paper flowers stacked together with bling in the middle. They hold up pretty well and I actually give them as freebies with my business cards when I ship out my orders. I know they are fragile....but they are cute too...lol. So I think that other lil girls will get a kick out of them even if just for a little while.
